ENTRIES:   Entry on the day only (EOD).  SportIdent (SI) punching will be used for all courses.  Hire dibbers will be available.

FEES:     Senior £7,    Junior £2.50,    SI dibber hire £1 (Juniors 50p)

DIRECTIONS:         The area is approximately 2 miles northwest of Harrogate Town Centre to the west of the A61. Follow the highway signs to the Park (signed as Killinghall Moor Community Park) from the traffic lights on the A61  0.75 miles north of town centre, 0.5 miles south of A59 /A61 roundabout. Take Jennyfields Drive and proceed west, then after 1 mile turn left onto Saltergate Drive and then Barberry Close (Sat Nav/on-line maps: Barberry Close, Harrogate). The event will be signed from Jennyfields Drive. Please check the Claro website for any final updates before travelling.

PARKING: Parking is in a free public car park near Registration.  Please exercise consideration towards non-orienteers. Registration is in the Community Centre/Pavilion on the eastern edge of the car park. The start will be about 100m from registration.

TERRAIN:         Mostly runnable parkland and areas of scattered woodland.  Due to the constraints of the area, the long course is likely to have at least some route choice options that could use public roads, although these are minimised, will not be extensive and there will be viable alternatives. Runners should consider appropriate footwear. It is quite wet in the woodland areas and there is a stream that is crossable in places other than the marked crossing points. The Medium and Short do not have this option, so U16s are not excluded from entering them.  The nature of the terrain is such that for several legs it will not be possible to achieve TD4 or 5, but courses have been carefully planned to try and make best use of the available terrain.

MAP:          1:5,000 scale with 5m contours for all courses.  Printed on waterproof paper. Control descriptions will be printed on the map and available loose at registration (not on waterproof paper).

COURSES:       The following courses will be provided:

Long 4.7km, 95m climb, 14 controls
Medium 4.1km, 80m climb, 12 controls
Short 2.4km, 35m climb, 8 controls
